Can you use keyboard shortcuts in WYSIWYG fields?


  • General markdown syntax and some keyboard shortcuts work in Coursedog’s WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) text box.

  • However, there aren’t keyboard shortcuts available for all of the tools displayed in the WYSIWYG toolbar.


Shortcuts that work in our WYSIWYG editor include:

  1. Undo – Cmd+Z (Mac), Ctrl+Z (PC)

  2. Redo – Cmd+Shift+Z (Mac), Ctrl+Y (PC)

  3. Bold – Cmd+B (Mac), Ctrl+B (PC)

  4. Ital – Cmd+I (Mac), Ctrl+I (PC)

  8. Cut Text – Cmd+X (Mac), Ctrl+X (PC)

What is the underlying format used for your WYSIWYG editor?

  • The underlying format is a HTML/JSON content tree.

  • Our WYSIWYG editor was built using a toolkit for building rich text editors; RTF content pasted into our WYSIWYG editor should retain most of its formatting.
